To Life Until Peter was found out and brought in, this was it. The problem was that no one but them were looking for him.

Heartbreakingly sad, but lovely.

Stars Shining Bright Above You When he dreams, he dreams in wide, sweeping epics or in perfect rosebuds of vignettes. The importance of dreams and how they can change you.

Sirius dreams about a man he's never met. Interesting ending.

Into Every Corner He falls in love with the music, and just maybe the man singing it too.

Adorbale fic with a besotted Sirius. Who doesn't love a besotted Sirius?

A-like Singing the Blues As the war slowly came to consume their lives, "London Calling" were two words neither of them ever wanted to hear.

Very short fic that really captures the despair of the first war. So ouchy.

Lost To Yourself Sirius Black writes gay porn for a skin mag, and meets Remus Lupin, who does professional readings (audio recordings) of his fictions, and there is flirting, and courting, and love over narratives, cds, and fictionality.

Oh, how much do I love this? Tons! This is a delightful story with lovely prose and a romance that heats up between Sirius, a porn author, and Sirius, his reader (think podficcer). Sirius' narrative changes as his desire for Remus, someone he has never met but whose voice he has fallen in unrepentent lust with. When the two do finally meet the chemistry simply crackles between them. This piece also features a very endearing cameo of Tonks, the snarky, pushy cousin who who banters wickedly with Sirius. Delightful that you should go read right now!

Going On Fifteen "Harry has a girlfriend," Remus says in a hushed voice, but Harry can still hear him from the bottom of the stairs. He shouldn't eavesdrop, but it's about him, so he has a right to know what they're saying.

A very sweet story told from Harry's POV about the anxiety parents have watching their children grow and hope that their own mistakes aren't repeated. This very short read is very endearing with memorable dialog.

Watching You When Remus, a Firebender, arrives at Hogwarts, he only expects to learn how to firebend. He doesn’t expect to learn seven other lessons as well, nor does he expect to find them the most meaningful lessons of all.

This piece is a crossover with the 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' which I have no familiarity with but still found this to be a charming, enjoyable read.

Je vois les autres In which Sirius likes to keep track of the things his friends do, and Remus doing whatever Remus wants to is turning out to be quite a problem. And Sirius's problem, at that.

I love a boyish, oblivious Sirius who is the last to realize he has a thing for Remus. This is charming to the last as Sirius stalks Remus about the castle becoming ever more frustrated with the werewolf's determination for doing as he pleases, with nary a by-your-leave for Sirius.

Some Dream By Day "Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act out their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible." - TE Lawrence.

One of my most favorite of genre's, the non-magic AU. In this, both boys have miserable home lives, have had to make compromise after compromise, and long desperately to get away, to seek a different future than the one their respective families want for them. They each have to make hard choices and leave things, people, and other dreams behind if they want to be together. Beautifully written, smoking hot, and heart-breaking throughout.

Sodom and Gainsborough Non magical AU - Remus Lupin is a miserable priest, caught up in a huge scandal. When Sirius Black (old flame and now astrophysicist) walks back into his life after 10 years, he finds himself getting a little more than he bargained for.

At over 55,000 words, this is a truly mammoth work of fanfiction for what is essentially a one-shot, and every word so completely worth it. I really don't want to give anything away, but it is one of the most satisfying stories I've ever read. The characters are drawn with an unflinching eye at how harsh real life can be, what the toll it can take on a person's psyche, but the story is told in such a real way, and with such humor and honesty. Just an awesome read, so go read it already!

Men of Six O'Clock Having been rescued from revolutionary France during the Terror, Remus Lupin cannot sleep.

Gorgeous, dreamy piece of historical fiction. I just love the style of writing in this and the atmosphere the author creates and maintains.

Storm in a Teacup Recognition of our mortality, or that of the one we love, can be terrifying. And when Harry Potter is six-and-a-half years old, it threatens to tear his family apart.

This is another very human, very real story. Touching, poignant and sad, but also hopeful.

Bridges I Have Burned Writing isn’t Sirius Black’s career of choice and he is struggling to meet the deadline for his upcoming novel. The new man that suddenly appears in his life provides a welcome distraction, but there is something mysterious about him that Sirius cannot point his finger at. For better or worse, the ultimate revelation will change both their lives. (Non-magic AU)

Excellent use of the first person narrative in this. Sirius is a very flawed man who knows himself to be a sham and a user and put the love of his life on the line for a filthy bag of silver coins.

How Soon Is Now? Four snapshots of the life of Remus Lupin, a young striking miner, and the start of his relationship with Sirius Black, a grammar school boy and son of a local councillor.

This is a quick read but the author manages to touch on some very heavy themes in this beautiful piece of historical fiction.

Flight From Grimmauld Keep Imprisoned within the old fortress of legend, Grimmauld Keep, Remus has been left to die. A freak earthquake destroys his cell and gives him a chance to escape, which he takes immediately. But in his bid for freedom, he discovers another prisoner--and Remus cannot, in good conscience, leave the other young man behind.

I really love this piece. The color and movement just gorgeous.

Absurd Joy Sirius bartends in a Muggle bar, winter after graduation, and Remus spends his Saturday afternoons smoking on a high stool, drinking rum and tossing peanuts at him when he thinks he isn’t looking.

Very moving with a lovely use of imagery.

Dark Hours Times are growing darker. Order missions are failing and the body count is rising. But Remus knows he'd be able to make it through all that, if it weren't for this.

Incredibly moving, must read fic.

Freedom Is Mine The Marauders go to Liverpool on the summer before sixth year. Peter is a stud, James realizes Lily is his true love, and Remus and Sirius share some things.

Lovely, happy mad-cap adventure!

Seeking Shelter Sirius' last moments before the meeting that would inevitably put him in Azkaban.
